Litany of Spiritual Confidence

Litany of Spiritual Confidence

( R/  Lord, keep me close to You.)

 Lord, I can do all that You ask of me because it is You who strengthen me. R/

Lord, whenever I fall You delight in my confidence to trust You all the more. R/

Lord, let me look to You and not to myself to find what is needed to please You. R/

Lord, when I am overcome by fear it is because my peace depends on some thing instead of on Your will. R/

Lord, free me from my hidden attachments to self-righteousness. R/

Lord, let me always remember that it is You who move me to ask for Your love. R/

Lord, help me to see that the meaning of my faults is to learn to depend on You more and more. R/

Lord, give me the strength to cry out for Your love when all that I see is nothingness in myself. R/

Lord, save me from the impulse to look for my peace and security in my own strength. R/

Lord, the more you let me see what I am left to myself, the more You give me the grace to cling to You. R/

Lord, to be happy, I need nothing but what You provide for me at every moment. R/

Lord, the more I live in the love You give me in this moment, the more perfectly I am able to suffer whatever comes my way. R/

Lord, when I come to You at those times when I am overwhelmed by my own misery I glorify You the most. R/

Lord, it is in being receptive to You in the knowledge of my own weakness that I derive all my strength. R/

Lord, let me always remember that You want me to let You make me perfect by Your love. R/

Lord, the measure of my union with You is my faith in the power of Your love to purify me and make me worthy of You. R/
